Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship Nomination

The Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship is intended to promote awareness of the benefits of attending the conference and to support and nurture an AIIP member who has not previously attended an AIIP Annual Conference.

When the annual event includes in-person sessions, the Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship provides $1,000 toward hotel and travel expenses, and AIIP covers the registration fee. In addition, if the event is virtual and/or the awardee cannot attend in person, this award provides a free virtual registration to an AIIP member attending for the first time.


  • Applicants must have been an AIIP member for at least two years and in business as an independent information professional for at least two years. Their business must be full time and represent the applicant’s primary source of income.
  • Applicants must be attending their first AIIP Annual Conference.
  • Applicants can nominate themselves.
Note: If you attended the virtual conference in 2021 or 2022, but have not attended an in-person conference you are eligible to apply for this award.

Nominations and Award Process

Nominations are accepted via the application form on this page. Nominations are evaluated by a judging panel consisting of three AIIP members.

Nominations are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2024.

Additional Information

  • The award will be forfeited if the winner is unable to attend the upcoming AIIP Conference. The winner will have 72 hours to indicate whether he/she will attend the conference. If s/he cannot attend, the award will be offered to the first runner-up.
  • The Roger Summit Conference Sponsorship constitutes a considerable investment by AIIP. Each year's winner will be invited to voluntarily serve on an AIIP committee for a minimum of one year after receiving the scholarship.
